Ingredients

4 large portabella mushrooms, thinly sliced
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, toss together the portabella mushroom slices, 3 tablespoons of olive oil, lemon juice, mint, salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat your barbecue or grill pan to medium high heat. Place the portabella slices and the bread on the grill. Cook for 2-3 minutes until grill marks have formed on the bread and mushrooms start releasing juices. Flip everything and grill for an additional 2-3 minutes until mushrooms are cooked through.
  3. To assemble each sandwich, spread 1 tablespoon of mayo on one slice of bread and 2 tablespoons of ricotta on the other slice of bread. Arrange a quarter of the mushroom slices on top of mayo, then top mushrooms with the sun dried tomatoes. Next place a handful of arugula then top with the other slice of bread. Cut in half and serve with your favourite sandwich side.

Mushroom Breakfast Sandwich

Mushroom Omelette Breakfast Sandwich

This recipe serves four, but I think I will make this the next time I have company for brunch and just serve the sandwiches cut in half. One whole sandwich would be too much if you are having loads of other things, but half would be just right. You will be looking for different times to serve these just like I am. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 10 mins. | Cook Time: 20 mins. | Serves: 4

Recipe courtesy of Christina from Strawberries For Supper

Ingredients

3 tbsp butter
200 grams cremini or button mushrooms, sliced
6 eggs
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp fresh thyme (optional)
¼ tsp salt
pinch of pepper
150 grams sliced Black Forest deli ham
4 slices Havarti or Swiss cheese
4 croissants

Method

1. In a large non-stick oven safe frying pan, melt the butter over a medium heat and add all the sliced mushrooms with a pinch of salt and pepper. Sautee the mushrooms for 10 minutes, or until the mushrooms are browned.
2. While the mushrooms cook, slice the croissants lengthwise to create a croissant bun and place them on a foil or parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
3. Add all the eggs to a bowl and lightly beat them with a fork. Add the milk, fresh thyme, and salt and pepper.
4. When the mushrooms are browned, make sure they are spread evenly on the pan and pour in the egg mixture. With a spatula, move the egg around to create ripples and to help the egg cook faster by moving cooked egg aside so the runny egg can fill in the space.
5. When all the egg is just about cooked, you can finish it off by putting the pan under the broiler for 30-40 seconds. Keep it there longer if you want the top of the eggs to brown but keep a very close eye on it.
6. Transfer the omelette to a cutting board and slice it into four portions. Put one portion on each of the croissants. Top the sandwiches with ham and one slice of Havarti cheese.
7. To serve right away, put the sandwiches in 375 F oven for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the ham is warmed through. If you want to heat them through later then wrap them individually in foil and keep in the fridge until needed. You can keep them safely for 1-2 days in the fridge.

This comforting breakfast-style meal is simple enough for weeknight supper, but also decadent enough for Sunday Brunch with friends! As always, a big thanks to Christina for sharing her creativity and mouthwatering meal inspiration!

Roasted Mushroom Scones

Roasted Mushroom and Aged Cheddar Scones

These are a savory-breakfast-lovers’ dream! We make a few different types of scones, both sweet and savory, each year to bring to our family brunch gathering, and these are without doubt my favourite. So full of salty, savory mushroom flavour and ooey gooey aged cheddar cheese. They freeze wonderfully, too! Just take one out and warm in the oven and you’ve got a homemade treat to indulge in.

Recipe courtesy of Kelly from The Gouda Life. 

Ingredients

Scones

  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher/sea salt
  • ½ cup COLD butter,
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ⅔ cup buttermilk
  • ⅔ cup grated aged cheddar
  • 1 cup chopped roasted mushrooms, recipe follows
  • 1 egg, beaten lightly, to brush tops of scones

Roasted Mushrooms

  • 450g whole cremini, wiped clean and stems removed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp fresh ground pepper

Method

Scones

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter or two knives until you’ve got a crumbly mixture with butter pieces no larger than peas.
  3. I like to put the bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes here to make sure everything is as cold as possible. If you skip this step, no problem.
  4. Add the lightly beaten eggs and buttermilk and stir to combine. It will be wet and sticky.
  5. Add in the cheddar and cooled chopped mushrooms and knead the dough, folding it over on itself 5-6 times to incorporate the mushrooms and cheese.
  6. Again, I like to pop it in the freezer at this point for another 10 minutes.
  7. On a lightly floured surface, turn the sticky dough out and knead lightly a few more times. Roll the dough ¾ inch thick. Cut out 3 inch squares, then cut diagonally to make triangles. You should have about 10 scones.
  8. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, brush with a little beaten egg and a sprinkle of fresh ground pepper if you’d like.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Mushrooms

  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Toss whole mushrooms in the oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Spread on a baking sheet and roast, stirring a few times, until tender and browned, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool completely before chopping up and adding to scone mixture. If you have leftovers, save them for an omelette in the morning.

Notes

I’ve used Cremini mushrooms here, but you feel free to use what you like best.

For cheese, I used a cheddar aged for 3 years but again whatever you like will be great. Something sharp and tangy works really well.

  3. Continually stir until onion becomes soft and translucent about 2 minutes, then add in mushrooms. and stir, you may need to add a bit of oil as the mushrooms will absorb a bit, season with salt and pepper.
  4. When the mushrooms are well coated with the oil add in the thyme and white wine and cook for about 10 minutes or until wine is all dissipated stirring occasionally. Finish with sprinkle of parsley and set aside to cool.
  5. Crack eggs in a medium bowl, spoon in milk ,add some salt and pepper and the grated Parmigiano cheese or Grana whichever you have and stir well until eggs, milk and cheese are well incorporated, add in cooled mushrooms leaving about 1/8 of the mushrooms for later use and stir again.
  6. In a 10 inch sauté pan drizzle in 2 tablespoon evo oil and drop in the butter, heat  on low until butter melts and rotate pan to evenly distribute the oil and butter throughout the bottom of the pan.
  7. Pour egg and mushroom mixture into sauté pan and move pan to evenly distribute the mixture well. Move mushrooms so they are distributed well throughout the pan. Cover and let cook for 10 minutes on very low heat. With a spatula check it from time to time to see that bottom is not browning.
  8. When the bottom is firm and a nice creamy color, put the remaining mushroom nicely on top, place a 10 inch dish that fits tight inside the pan and holding the dish firmly turn the pan upside down releasing the frittata from the pan to the plate. Then slowly slide the frittata nicely back into the pan.
  9. Let it cook on low for about 2-3 minutes uncovered check it by lifting the edge with a spatula if it is firm take off heat and slide frittata onto a plate, and shave some black European  black truffle cheese on top and finish with a sprinkling of fresh chopped parsley, cut into 8 equal slices and serve.
